It has dropped the “Le” and the “The” and
is now simply, serenely, and beautifully Christopher.
It really is one of St. Barth’s grande dames and
it begins this decade refurbished to its past glory days – and then some. Poised out on a
promontory in chi-chi Pointe Milou, the sound of the
surf provides the perfect score to breathtaking panoramic
views. Guests settled in poolside on the comfy lounges,
gaze out at the neighboring islands and look as pleased
as well, Ti Punch.
Oh, that pool - lusciously large and infinity-edged it meanders along
the waterfront and seems to merge with the sea. It is banked with plush lounging beds, and a little “pool island” -
complete with palm trees – is a primo spot to
see and be seen while sunbathing.
Christopher’s two restaurants have kept their
names but old friends would hardly know them. Mango – the
pool bar and feet-in-the-sand-informal restaurant
- is bigger - and shall we say better? We will. Sixteen
lucky patrons can now belly up to the bar for un
coupe de Champagne, and it’s the perfect
spot to dally over lunch. The menu includes some of
the BBQ favorites of yore, and lots of exciting new
items. Go ahead, sit down and relax and order a cold
Carib or a tropical cocktail. You’re
on vacation. Restaurant cum lounge Taïno has
had its space redefined, opening it to the sea. It’s
very St. Barth with a casually elegant ambiance and
divine food. A full buffet breakfast is served here
each morning and we recommend their homemade yogurt.
The hotel has a total of 41 rooms housed in four pretty
two-storied buildings; slate-roofed and white-sided
they arc above the dramatic rocky coastline. Between
rooms and suites, there are loads of accommodation
choices, and all have either a private terrace or
balcony. Poolside units are adjacent to lush tropical
gardens and we love the chicly refurbished Deluxe
Ocean View rooms boasting gorgeous vistas of the sea.
